Despite the slow economic environment of the Engineering Industry, the 3D laser scanning market has shown tremendous scope for growth. The laser scanning market was evaluated at $2 billion in 2013 and is expected to reach $4 billion by 2018.
Reverse engineering as we know it today, involves the "un-building" of components to determine the actual fabrication process of the object. This helps in re-designing various components and reduces the resources needed as compared to building the device from scratch. By using the latest 3D laser scanning technology, reverse engineering processes can be streamlined and completed faster. Although an evolving technology, 3D laser scanners can leverage their precise point capture technology to scan and detect all the surface points, and extrapolate the data to reconstruct the entire object under consideration.
Traditional reverse engineering methods involved the manual measurement of dimensions, and then use the same in CAD to complete the product outline. However with 3D laser scanning services, the scanner can detect thousands of surface points in few seconds. This improvement in speed ensures a particular task can be finished in double quick time, thereby revolutionizing the field of reverse engineering.
This reduction in time also helps in reducing the overall design life-cycle during product development, and encourages faster duplication of existing machine parts. Today, with rapid advancements being made in the field of 3D reverse engineering, replicating a complex surface using conventional or manual methods is nearly impossible. 3D laser scanning has simplified this task and changed the face of reverse engineering.
3D laser scanning in reverse engineering is widely used in today's world. Using this method comes with a series of benefits. Here are some of the 3D laser scanning benefits:
